It’s no secret the media at large hates, and I do mean vehemently hates, President George Bush. Even though he hasn’t made every decision exactly like I wish he would have, I still support him and believe he loves America. The love of America alone is not qualification for being President but it surely should be one obvious quality; don’t you think?
With that said I’d like to tell you something I’ve learned from him that have really helped my resolve during the last two (and this present one) presidential elections.
Mind you, I’m not quoting him. This is just the way words he has said over and over have resonated in my hearing.
The American people are smarter than the Democrats (or the media) give them credit for being. President Bush constantly says he has faith in the American people. They will do their homework and then they will exercise their American right to vote.
In 2000 when I had nightmares about the possibility of Al Gore being the President… I just kept going back to those words… faith in the American people. In 2004 when John Kerry, an even worse possibility than the four years prior, appeared to be winning the hearts of all good Americans (that is if you listened to mainstream media) and looked at the polls, it was again extremely discouraging to imagine the path our country could be headed down with him as President. I just kept going back to those words … faith in the American people.
So for 2008 when my heart wants to faint for the thought of a person like Barrack Obama taking the helm of the greatest country on the face of the earth, I’m pulling up those words to remind me to have faith in the American people to make the RIGHT choice for the McCain/Palin ticket. Not a perfect choice but nonetheless the ONLY choice.
Personally, I think most Americans are smart enough that they have that gut-feeling that Obama is not the man he appears to be whether they know the facts or not. It’s been very difficult to obtain the real facts since the mainstream media has given him a pass for all his past associations and (non)record. But if you dig a little (click here for a jaw dropping article about Obama's activities) even a few facts about his record should give the average American that gnawing feeling on the inside that he just isn’t the sort of character a great country like ours deserves as its Commander in Chief.
I leave you with the final words from John McCain’s speech last night as he accepted the Republican nomination for President.
“Fight with me. Fight with me. Fight for what’s right for our country. Fight for the ideals and character of a free people. Fight for our children’s future. …Stand up, stand up, stand up and fight. Nothing is inevitable here. We’re Americans, and we never give up. We never quit. We never hide from history. We make history.”
